For Nathan Hale, it was never a question that he should stand up against the king’s rules if he believed them to be unjust.
As his father lay dying, Jonah Hawkins promised he would remain loyal to the king and never join the patriots in their resistance. But that promise isn’t easy to keep after he meets his new teacher—Master Nathan Hale—who inspires Jonah to learn and think about the nation’s growing turmoil. As the time for war draws near, the patriots call on all men to fight, and Nathan must leave to battle the British Army. But Jonah’s and Nathan’s paths will cross again, and when they do, Jonah will finally be forced to choose where his loyalties truly lie.
Inspired by the famous last words of a heroic patriot, Spy! is the story of one man’s ultimate sacrifice for his country and one boy’s awakening courage.
